Very quickly since in this moment I've not access to the scratchbox
installation i'm using:

1) download the python source package (apt-get source python)
2) unzip it
3) go to the debian subdir
4) open the rules file with an editor, locate the "rm termios.so" line
and remove it
5) run the dpkg-buildpackage command (you may find an howto on the
maemo site) under the armel environment
6) you get a new python deb file you can install in your 770
